About Low Carbon
Low Carbon is a leading investment company focused on developing, financing and operating renewable energy projects. We were founded with the ethos of sustainability, responsibility and mitigating the effects of climate change.
Since its formation in 2011, Low Carbon has been funding development activities in solar PV, battery energy storage, wind, waste to energy and energy efficiency.
Low Carbon has a proven track record in the development, construction, financing and management of renewable energy assets. We have a dedicated development team originating projects across Europe, and some of these projects could be kept in house and used to seed a fund. We have a dedicated investment team that evaluates and finances third party projects, with a mandate to invest in large, complex deals from a multi-billion dollar pool of capital.
In 2018 we established a €200m fund with Vitol (VLC Renewables) and have since successfully taken the first phase of a major onshore wind project to final close in Ukraine.
Our dedicated asset management team is managing a growing portfolio of assets both on balance sheet and for third parties and can add value to assets either developed and constructed in-house, acquired by the funds team, or owned by third parties. To date, Low Carbon has closed more than 50 renewable energy transactions.
Low Carbon is unusual in being both a development company and an FCA-licensed investment company. We are looking to build on its foundation with an ambition of raising up to €10bn AUM across several different fund products by 2029, starting with a European Renewable Energy fund in the Core plus range, targeting €500-750m.
Low Carbon is now looking to hire an Investor Relations Manager that will be a central resource responsible for coordinating and managing the relationships with potential, new and existing investors. Reporting to the Head of Capital Fundraising, this person will work closely with the Fund Management team. This is a new role for Low Carbon for 2021, and is a great opportunity for someone to create the function from the ground up based on their previous experience.
Low Carbon is a company which, as its name suggests, is passionate about the transition to a low carbon economy and determined to be a leader to accelerating this shift. This position is ideal for someone who wants to be a part of a world class renewable energy business and has the ambition to direct their skills and experience into driving investment into renewable energy at scale.
The role will be based in London with occasional travel overseas.
